Taco salad is my alternative to tacos. My kids can eat tacos every day if I would let them. This salad is my way of getting a break from eating them from time to time. It also gets my kids to eat more lettuce and tomatoes then when eating tacos.
1 lb Ground Beef
1 pkg or 3 Tbs Taco Seasoning
6 c Sliced Lettuce
2 c Diced Tomatoes
2 c Shredded Cheese
2 or 3 c Crushed Doritos
1 or 2 c Taco Sauce
Brown ground beef over medium heat. Use a potato masher to break it into little pieces. Once the ground beef is completely cook add taco seasoning and 1/4 c water. Stir and simmer for 5 minutes.
In a large bowl add sliced lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and Doritos. Add taco meat and mix well. Now add the taco sauce. Make sure it coats the salad evenly.
Optional add a scoop of sour cream to give it a creamier and less acid taste.
